Winner of the 2020 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award For Jazz Album Of The Year.

"Herron sings and plays the songs..wrapping her loving vocals around the best lyrical parts, enhancing each rendition with subtle distinctions — inviting, yet somehow confessional, with the warmth and intensity of a flickering fire without the burn".
Festival Peak

A Ton Of Trouble

A Ton Of Trouble

2019 winner of the Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award for Jazz Album Of The Year.

"Her voice is an invitation to simultaneous darkness and light whose caress is like those last few sparks of sunset breaking through the dreamy haze at day's end".

Between The Music & The Moon

Between The Music & The Moon

2017 winner of the Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award for Jazz Album Of The Year

"Hers is the accessibility of a singer constantly in touch with the necessary ingredient of emotion to bring any song to life, and reach the audience with the immediacy and preciousness of fleeting moments".

Good Thing

2015 winner of the Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award for Jazz Album Of The Year

"In poetry, we borrow a word from Italian to describe our craft: stanza, or "room." The writer ushers us into the poem's rooms, asking us to recalibrate our understanding at each doorway. Maggie Herron's GOOD THING, a mix of covers and original songs, offers that same versatility of style and emotion".
Sandra Beasley

In The Wings

 

"All in all, Maggie Herron, the artist, is poetry in flesh and blood".

  • A jazz vocal date that brings the passion and caring right from the heart, this is the kind of set jazz vocal fans have been looking for. Well done.
Musical Memoirs Blog
  • Right from the first smoky vocals, I was hooked on Maggie Herron's style and a few minutes later on her composing skills...I listened to this CD for two days straight, admiring the lyrical content, catchy melodies, smart arrangements and Maggie Herron's obvious multi talents.

  • 'Between The Music And The Moon': It's Herron's best effort so far, a lot more revealing, a touch on the sultry side, and showcases her original songwriting and those husky vocals.

Mark Tucker
  • Trust me, this release will take your breath away...I'd say Between Music & the Moon is spectacular, but that wouldn't fit the sensuous, romantic, and soft city-pastorale nature of the repertoire, so let's settle for an adjective just as fitting: it's perfect.

  • Herron's songwriting skills are evident from the start and her deep, rich voice takes the listener on a musical journey.
Jazz History Online
  • An admirable range of styles, from the sly wit of the opening track "Wolf", through the insistent rhythms of "I Can't Get to Sleep" and the lush romanticism of the title tune. Herron's smoky voice sounds like a mix of Cleo Laine and Dusty Springfield. All of the tracks exhibit a high level of musicality in both the compositions and the performances.
